GREEN COTTAGE, ROBIN HOOD’S BAY

With country-cosy good looks and a beachy postcode, Green Cottage in Robin Hood's Bay offers the best of both worlds...

With thoughts turning to summer holidays, why not consider whisking yourselves away to Robin Hood’s Bay for a night or two, either with the other half or a good chum or two.

Best visited during the warmer months, Green Cottage is a little winner if you’re looking for a pad that sits in between beach-chic and cosy-cottage. It can be found mere moments away from the beach, though inside boasts traditional country good looks that you can’t help fall in love with.

It’s bursting with character; expect to find plenty of original features as you explore the rooms, along with a few nautical nods along the way interiors-wise.

Highlights in the lounge include exposed beams and original floorboards, shabby-chic timber panelling and exposed stone walls. There’s also a neat built-in cathedral cupboard (also original) and a feature fireplace.

You’ll find the kitchen on the lower ground floor, packed with all the essentials (fridge/freezer, gas hob, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer), plus lovely extras like a big, period farmhouse table, bespoke oak worktops, original ships lighting and doors that open out to the balcony – a south-facing spot that’s perfect for alfresco brunch or dinner after a hard day in the sun.

Bedroom-wise, you have two – one on the first floor and the other on the second. Sleeping on the first floor? Then your space benefits from a double bed and an open feature fireplace, plus a separate bathroom nearby (check out the cast iron bath – dreamy).

The second boudoir provides breathtaking 180-degree views of Robin Hood’s Bay and is kitted out with a gorgeous period pine double bed and en-suite bathroom with exposed stone walls.
